By Sadraddin Aghjayev - Trend:

The investments for business development are traditionally a priority in small and medium business while IT and information security are financed on a leftover basis, Mushvig Mammadov, representative of Kaspersky Lab in Azerbaijan, told Trend.

“Ensuring cyber protection of key points of the business is critically important, this concerns, first of all, payments to partners, safety of customer databases from leaks, protection from ransomware and others,” Mammadov added.

“In our portfolio, cloud-based cyber protection - Kaspersky Endpoint Security Cloud can solve a similar problem,” representative of Kaspersky Lab added. “This solution does not require huge investments or special skills by a system administrator, who can even serve several small organizations.”

“It will be able to monitor all aspects related to cyber security, remotely, conveniently and efficiently,” Mammadov said. “Moreover, there are more and more distributed work teams as a result of the influence of the COVID-19 pandemic.”

“In this case, our product will help system administrators ensure the security of remote employees, including tracking shadow IT resources which are used for business purposes,” Mammadov added. “It is cloud-based security that is easy to apply and manage."

Mammadov stressed that the entire product line of "Kaspersky Lab" is available in Azerbaijan.

“The most demanded solutions in our country are solutions for endpoint protection, prevention and response to the complex threats,” representative of Kaspersky Lab added. “We hope to develop in the field of cybersecurity for big companies and offer not only endpoint products (endpoint protection), but also our services.”

“This year, the company also actively developed the projects from our incubator, for example, the Kaspersky Antidrone system and the Polys blockchain voting solution,” Mammadov said. “If the companies in Azerbaijan are interested in these decisions, we will be glad to start working in this sphere."

Moreover, in the field of cyber security of Azerbaijan from external cyber threats, the representative of Kaspersky Lab said that today, all over the world, there is a tendency for a decline in attacks, which is also typical for Azerbaijan.

“The number of massive threats is declining, while the number of unique malicious programs is growing,” Mammadov said. “The techniques of attackers are becoming more sophisticated and less noticeable. This is clearly seen in the situation with ransomware.”
